Connecting to Culture
With the help of their Cultural Outreach Worker, CIYO youth connect with a variety of different cultures as well as learn more about their own culture.
In CIYO, youth connect to culture by:
Participating in cultural activities in the community
Discussing what culture means to them
Participating in weekly cultural activities in the youth program
Having the opportunity to share their culture with others
In the past year, CIYO participants have connected with over 70 cultural activities in the community and over 90 cultural activities within the youth program.
